I read an article about a person giving their pet (dog) doggy treats that were made in china and it died of kidney failure. In fact, a lot of people were having this same issue with their pets.

Dear Cary,
My friend is taking all the medications the doctors in Germany has described for him and they seem to be working fine. However, I was wondering if there is other herbal any other other a person with kidney failure has tried and worked for him/her. I have seen in number of sites people getting well with socking in the bath tub with a table spoon of vinegar!! it is Chinese way of dealing with this kind of situation. At this point even though he is not on dialysis, I am trying very hard to find anything that might help him before he gets their.

I am not sure if I know how to send a private message without your email add. and at the same time I would like to know what you have given to your dog.

Plse let me know how to do so. Thanks again. suhair

Hi Anonymous,
Doing some research about your question shows that many resources show that Apple Cider Vinegar is helpful for kidney issues. Unlike medicines, natural remedies are not federally tested for their effectiveness. Here is some information from the Web MD in regard to Apple Cider Vinegar http://www.webmd.com/diet/apple-cider-vinegar?page=3.

Here is a link to the National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Information Clearinghouse which may be helpful for you also http://kidney.niddk.nih.gov/kudiseases/pubs/choosingtreatment/.

Good luck, let us know if you need more information.

Thank you the quick response. My family member is on stage 4 of renal disease and was wondering apart from medication, is there any herbal cure for prolonging kidney failure?

Hi Anonymous

I have a very young dog in stage 3 kidney failure. The disease is pretty much the same in dogs and humans, as are the meds and things to watch for. My vet is a holistic one, and I suggest you find a holistic medical practitioner in your area to work with your health care team so that each doc is aware of what the other is prescribing. Some herbals interact with prescription meds.

My dog is on several probiotics and other natural substances to help keep his kidneys functioning as efficiently as possible. He eats prescription food as well. If you'd like, I can give you a list of the substances in his supplements for you to take and discuss with the doctors. It seems to be improving my dog's bloodwork quite a bit. Send me a private message if you'd like this information.

The main thing to remember is that the doctors must all be aware of each supplement and med your family member is taking, natural or not. That way nothing interacts or accidentally makes things worse.

Good luck and thanks for writing.
